Yeah, I don't think they played Winterland on the 7th: it's supposed to be the Fillmore.

Following aquanee's lead, I listened to Stealin' from 7/17. It is identical to the version placed here. Then I listened to Cream Puff War and School Girl from 7/16. They are also identical. This is thus likely an accidental compilation. It probably isn't a real tape.

Subject: Not very confident this is correct
From doing the research it looks like this show was moved to Fillmore Auditorium(Deadbase XI). Also remember the existence of posters/artwork does NOT prove the show happened, it just proves artwork was made for a show that may have happened or been cancelled or moved, which was probably far more common in then than it is now. Lastly have a listen to the Stealin' from here and to the one posted by Charlie Miller for 7/17/1966 at

They are the same.

Read the NOTES at the bottom of page for 7/17/1966.

Just more info .. nothing more, nothing less.

Great sound for 1966 in any case.

Most sources label this show at the Fillmore... Possibly moved from Winterland.

Not much here, but that's understandable... Too bad because this sounds like an awesome show. Not much else to say so, here's my stars.

Wait a minute, watch what you're doing with your time! All the endless ruins of the past must stay behind, Yeah!

Excellent quality all around. Thank you tapers, for helping me in stealin' back to my same old used to be! I remember listening to tapes of this, and it brought back some memories of how we horded and guarded our prized old cassettes.

Interesting, Wolfgang's Vault has a Jefferson Airplane show from 10/7/66 at Winterland and says of it, "This Friday evening Jefferson Airplane set, sandwiched between sets by the Grateful Dead and the Butterfield Blues Band, began a memorable three-day run at Winterland and the Fillmore Auditorium." Just sayin'...

They played 2 shows on 10/8/66. They played an afternoon set for a peace benefit on Mt. Tam. They were scheduled to play at Winterland that night (hence the posters) but it was moved to the Fillmore. Good show too.

Subject: the year is wrong
the date might be right, but im holding a shirt here that says oct. 8th 1966- OUTDOOR THEATRE MT. TAMIPAIS. alright, just fixin' what i can, but it still sounds like a great show; assorted songs, whatever it is regardless, and isn't that what its all about, the music? i know i sound contradicting to myself because im here correcting it, but i figure if i can help, i might as well. but the dates not whats important here, its the music that jerry and the dead have made and shared forever until GD MERCHANDISING and BOB WIER got greedy!! im sorry bobby that u had to piss all your money away, but that doesnt mean take away the music!! were here to share, not steal, n i understand when u publish a show, that u take it off, but dont hold back music that ure not puttin' out there for us to buy! aight, have a GRATEFUL, passionate and crazy '06!!!

Subject: why the bad marks?
Hey this is some great old dead stuff.

Why the bad review?

Read it. It got bad marks because someone believes the venue didn't happen. Respectfully.. it's proven to be otherwise. This stuff is well cut for it's day, except for the lack of good voice in one song. For what it provides and what it's been through I give it a 5*.

Subject: Warning
This date never happened! There was no Winterland in Oct. of '66, at least not as a music venue. The Cream Puff War attributed to this date is the same version released on the "So Many Roads" box set and listed as having been performed at the Fillmore Aud. in July of '66. The Schoolgirl attributed to 10/7 is the identical cut performed on 7/16/66 Fillmore Aud. The Stealin' is undocumented it's unique from all other versions circulating  but I conclude it also was performed at the Fillmore Aud in July of 1966. I've been refuting this date for years. Why will no one double check? Signed, an extremely frustrated fan of '66 Dead.
